Girl Scout Badges

Join our Education Staff as they assist your troop in fulfilling
all requirements for official Girl Scout Badges!

Whitaker Center's Girl Scout workshops are always a favorite.  We offer workshops for Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors,  AND AMBASSADORS!  There are a variety of workshops from drawing to movie making. Scouts can register with their troop or as individuals.  Adults and leaders will need to accompany their Girl Scouts to the workshop and remain within the required ratios.  Each scout will take home the earned badge at the end of the workshop to add to their vest or sash! Questions regarding workshops can be sent to education@whitakercenter.org.  We look forward to seeing you soon!  

Please note, for badge workshops held at Whitaker Center - science center exploration before or after your workshop is NOT included in the price of your workshop.  Science center tickets can be purchased at the Box Office the day of your workshop if the science center is open to the public.  

Whitaker Center follows CDC guidelines and recommendations.  At this time, masks are optional. 


Girl Scout 1 badge: $10
Adults: Need to attend with your scout, but you do not need to register.
